Description

Discover Byron Bay and its surroundings from a microlight aircraft—a 2-seat, fixed-wing aircraft with an open cockpit. From Tyagarah Airfield, tour Byron Bay, flying from Bangalow to Main Beach at up to 2,500 feet (762 m) above the ground.

Meet your guide and experienced pilot at Tyagarah Airfield, 3.7 miles (6 km) north of Byron Bay. Then listen to the pre-flight briefing, which includes a description of the aircraft and how to board it, as well as some basic explanation of its procedures and controls. Put on your flying suit, helmet, and intercom headset as you get ready for your microlight-flying experience.

Take to the air with your pilot and marvel at Byron Bay's quaint villages and bustling towns. Later, fly over the water along the Broken Head National Reserve to Tallow Beach and Cape Byron at 2,500 feet (762 m) above the ground. Here, spot the famous lighthouse located at the easternmost point of mainland Australia.

Your pilot flies at no more than 68 miles per hour (110 km/h), so you have plenty of time to admire the unrivalled views from your seat. During the flight, if the weather is suitable, you have the opportunity to take control of the aircraft. After 45 minutes of flying through the uncluttered air space, your pilot soars above Main Beach before landing back safely at Tyagarah.
